Reading Guide

In The News

“Cartoon illustrations in reds and blues and a succinct text work together in an effective design, building the dramatic humor. An illustrator's aim is to keep important parts of the story out of a picture book's gutter, and this funny, interactive book is a superbly self-aware - in more ways than one - exemplar of what not to do.” —The Horn Book

“A lively physical slant on the interactive picture book.” —BCCB

“It's quick, fizzy entertainment, good as a waiting-room read or an addition to the bedtime pile.” —Publishers Weekly

“A carnivorous book invites readers to participate.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Byrne's comical play on the book's gutter will entertain kids and adults . . . This book will make for a good one-on-one reading, giving children an opportunity to save the day.” —School Library Journal
